Adapting Educational and Psychological Tests for Cross-Cultural Assessment

Synopsis

Relatively few instruments have been truly adapted for application in other languages and cultures. The goal of this new book is to put an end to the faulty practices of adopting or "borrowing" tests from one culture without properly adapting them for another as set forth by the principles established by the International Test Commission (ITC).
